Hmmmmmmm brain is ticking as I have just got my hands on a polo and was thinking a g40 engine but this has been done a few
Times before so I think a vr6 engine would be unique and fast

Any conversion is possible with a little time and effort, I was looking at a Mk1 fiesta with a V6 cosworth engine & rear wheel drive the other day on eBay. That would be great fun but it needs a shortened propshaft.

I don't know of any, what I'd do is search google to see if anyone else has done it and if there's a step by step guide.
I know there's special engine mounts available on eBay for putting a C20LET (2.0 twin cam 16v turbo) in a corsa, maybe there's some things for polos?
Was the G40 supercharged?

i know someone who would be able to do it for you but chances are it wont be cheap to do wink

shame they are heavy for a small car, bike engines are an easy conversion. mind you, you could go for twin bike engine smile

Unfortunatly I think its one of those jobs where you have to write a blank cheque.

If its not a common conversion, then who knows what complications can arise. IMO if your on a budget, its a DIY project to keep costs down frown

Ive seen a V6 in a Mini and a V8 in a Morris Minor!!! A famous one from the seventies was grafting the body from a Capri onto the floorpan of a Mustang!!
